4 Benefits of Whiter Teeth

4 Benefits of Whiter Teeth

We love hearing (and sharing) how having their teeth professionally whitened in our office has changed our patients’ lives. In this blog post, we share a few of the benefits we hear most often. 

Improved self-confidence

Whiter teeth can help you feel more confident, making it easier to speak, smile, and laugh in front of others. The benefits of self-confidence, then, are many-fold and include improved personal relationships and professional potential. Sometimes a bright white smile provides the boost needed to make the first move in a relationship or make a bold move at work.

It changes the way others perceive you

When you don’t feel comfortable smiling (and smiling wide), those around you may make assumptions about your personality that aren’t an accurate representation of who you are. Perhaps they’ll assume you’re insecure, unfriendly, or judgmental. However, when you feel good about your smile, you smile more often. As a result, those around you may be more likely to judge you as friendly, outgoing, confident, warm, and competent.

It can give you a more youthful appearance

Discolored teeth go hand in hand with aging. Years of coffee, wine, and other culprits naturally change the color of your teeth, so as you age, your teeth will take on a darker color. Looking younger can be invasive and expensive, but whitening your teeth is one way you can give yourself a more youthful appearance without surgery or expensive treatments that require consistent upkeep. 

It’s motivating

Having your teeth professionally whitened can serve as great motivation to “power up” your oral health, avoiding foods that are known to cause staining, flossing every day, and brushing twice a day. Many patients report that they took their hygienist’s recommendations more seriously after a professional whitening appointment out of a desire to maintain their results for as long as possible.
